Telenor, one of the world’s major mobile operators across Scandinavia and Asia, extends with Zalari


Zalaris has signed a six-year extension with Telenor – one of the leading Nordic
providers of mobile, broadband and direct-to-home television services. Close to
10,000 employees in Scandinavia will be served by Zalaris solutions, and the
agreement includes an option for broader geographic reach.

Zalaris has delivered HR and Payroll services for Telenor’s employees in Norway,
Sweden and Danmark since the first agreement five years ago in 2013. Now,
Telenor has extended the relation with Zalaris and signed a new agreement for
six years. Through the new agreement Finland is also included. 

“We are both proud and happy to continue serving Telenor with services that
makes the nearly 10,000 employees’ workdays even more efficient. This agreement
also proves our abilities as a multi-country provider of HR services,” says
Hans-Petter Mellerud, Zalaris’ founder and CEO.

Telenor Group has a total of 173 million customers across Scandinavia and Asia.
The company is listed on Oslo Stock Exchange as one of Norway’s largest
companies. Telenor has a leading Nordic position in mobile, broadband and
television services.

Potential geographic expansion
In addition to handling payroll, time and attendance, and travel expenses for
Telenor’s employees Zalaris will also be engaged in optimalization of different
processes. This includes a new modern integration of the new system with
Telenor’s own global HR solution Workday. The agreement includes an option for
broader geographic reach through a global framework agreement with Telenor
procurement company based out from Singapore. 

“Zalaris has proven itself to be a solid partner for several years and together
we have identified the areas we jointly seek to improve with the goal of
delivering the best user experiences to our employees at a competitive price. We
believe that Zalaris is the right partner for us to achieve the results we seek
over the next years,” says Øystein Bakken, director for HR in Telenor in Norway.
